Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a deeply emotional walk through times and places which everyone experiences at some point in their lives, in their own unique way... First loves, Lost loves, and the emotions in between. I enjoyed Harz' ability to bring the reader inside his emotional space and how he shares his uniquely personal perspective on these experiences.

About the Author

Steven Harz was the winnerof the 2013 International People's Poetry Contest and a multi-time winner ofThe Iron Writer Challenge. In 2017 he won Honorable Mention in the ConnecticutPoetry Society's Al Savard Memorial Poetry Contest. Originally from WestVirginia, he grew up in Maryland and now lives in New England. You mayrecognize these places in his stories.


Steven did not beginwriting until in his 40s, needing that time to collect, and weed through, thethings he'd collected throughout his life. Spending much of his time inside hisown head, healthy or not, much of what he writes comes out of the noise that'sin there.

His work covers various topics and moves between poems that, on one end of thespectrum resemble the lyrics of a country love song, to the other end where hiswords cut into the reader, reminding them of the pain caused by loves gainedand lost.

Steven's words have beenhighlighted in in Inwood Indiana Press' Tracks, Voices 2, Donut Factory,Words+Pictures, Ink Monkey Magazine, The Germ, The Voices Project, PocketThoughts, and Indigo Rising UK. 

Steven Harz is a graduateof Towson University's College of Fine Arts and Communication. He loves musicand reading, coffee and Dr Pepper, sports and Broadway, and watching his boysperform on stage and the baseball diamond.

"Engaging read. Harz manages to translate heartfelt feelings into the written word. It's a work that you can go back to many times and get get something new each time."

"Thanks for bringing the memories roaring back Mr. Harz in the most 'Springsteenish' of ways - we all need you to appreciate where we've been, what we are doing, where we want to go and how to love the one we want to love."

Steven Harz is the author of multiple collections of love stories, was the winner of the 2013 International People's Poetry Contest, and is a multi-time winner of The Iron Writer Challenge. Additionally, Steven has written a number of non-fiction tiles, including his top-selling guides on coaching youth baseball players.

Steven did not begin writing until in his 40s, needing that time to collect, and weed through, the things he’d collected throughout his life. Spending much of his time inside his own head, healthy or not, much of what he writes comes out of the noise that’s in there.

If you are looking for flowery love stories you’ve come to the exact wrong place. Steven refuses to write in such a way that the reader needs a companion dictionary to figure out what he’s trying to convey – he wants to paint a sweet and simple picture, not perform unnecessary vocabulary gymnastics (if he ever uses the word ‘osculation’ rather than ‘kiss’ he gives you full permission to smack him if you see him on the street).

His series, “Backroad Love Stories,” covers various topics and moves between stories that, on one end of the spectrum resemble the lyrics of a country love song, to the other end where his words cut into the reader, reminding them of the pain caused by loves gained and lost.

Steven’s words have been highlighted in in Inwood Indiana Press' Tracks, The Pangolin Review, Voices 2, Donut Factory, Words+Pictures, Amethyst Review, Ink Monkey Magazine, The Germ, The Voices Project, Pocket Thoughts, Boomer Lit Mag, Raw Journal of Arts, Soft Cartel, Poetry Leaves, Chaleur Magazine, and Indigo Rising UK.

Steven Harz is a graduate of Towson University’s College of Fine Arts and Communication. He loves music and reading, coffee and Dr Pepper, sports and Broadway, and watching his boys perform on stage and the baseball diamond.

Reviews of Steven's work:

"This collection of poetry is a must read. The pieces make you feel warm, fuzzy and loved; the perfect read after a long day. The poetry brings to mind how good it feels to love and be loved."

"Just finished Self Inflicted Heart Shaped Wounds. I'm speechless. Steve's writing gets right to the heart of things, and I like writers (and people in general) who can do that with brutal honesty and grace. This work reminds me of a line from Jerry McGuire -- "The Things We Think But Do Not Say." I can't recommend this collection highly enough. Thank you, Steve, for writing the things we think but don't often (or ever) say."

"Steven Harz takes me back to a time when Steely Dan was on the radio and I was finding myself as a person. Very insightful and very talented. Looking forward to more of his work."

"Thanks for bringing the memories roaring back Mr. Harz in the most 'Springsteenish' of ways - we all need you to appreciate where we've been, what we are doing, where we want to go and how to love the one we want to love."
